The main role of a bush is to absorb the various forces applied to the control arm. It achieves this through its elasticity.
BENEFITS OF ALUMINUM ARM BODIES SANDBLASTING
The hardening of the sandblasted surface retards the crack nucleation, enhances the resistance to plastic deformation and improves the stress distribution, thus providing the ability to resist to crack propagation.
PREVENTING DETACHMENT OF THE BALL JOINT FROM THE WHEEL KNUCKLE
Ball joints such as CI-BJ-16641 have a large collar above the ball joint thread which the installer must ‘punch’ with a flat chisel. This action locks the collar into a locating notch on the wheel knuckle to prevent detachment.
METAL UPPER RING AND CLOSING CAP ON LINK STABILISERS
Link stabilisers endure repeated push and pull movements in operation. Metal to metal component contact significantly increases wear resistance against these forces.
WHY HARDEN BALL PINS ARE USED WITH CARBON FIBRE BEARINGS?
Vehicle manufacturers sometimes harden ball pins for applications where the ball pin neck can be subjected to very high forces e.g. high speed braking or where the vehicle can be heavily loaded. Hardening increases fatigue resistance and increases durability.

DON’T REPLACE A ‘PRESSED-IN’ BALL JOINT MORE THAN ONCE
For driver safety, MOOG recommends that a ‘press-in’ ball joint is only replaced on one occasion and that any subsequent repair should use a fully assembled wishbone arm.
CORRECT FITTING POSITION FOR LINK STABILIZERS
Some link stabilizers can appear to be symmetrical, when in fact they are handed parts with specific left and right fitting positions. Sometimes this is overlooked by installers.

PLASTIC TO METAL BUSH FOR PEUGEOT 1007 AND CITROËN C2/C3
